|New York Climbers Achieve Access Victory at Dickie Barre|
The Access Fund and Gunks Climbers Coalition (GCC) have worked for over four years to advocate for expansion of climbing opportunities at Minnewaska State Park in New York. We are pleased to announce that the Dickie Barre area was officially opened to climbing on April 30th. A huge thanks goes out to GCC for working alongside the Palisades Interstate Park Commission and the New York State Office of Parks to drive this victory. In a relatively short period of time, GCC was able to build trails (with a little help from the Access Fund Conservation Team), get the area surveyed, and organize the opening of this climbing area. Congratulations GCC!
